The Study of Seduction by Sabrina Jeffries
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Study of Seduction is a regency romance novel written by one of my favorite romance authors, Sabrina Jeffries. Her characters are always true to life and the chemistry between the main characters is always spot on. The story is based on Clarissa and her friend turned suitor Edwin who helps her discourage a creepy Frenchman set on marrying her. The tragedy Clarissa endured in her past haunts her every day and prevents her from getting close to any man. Edwin is just the man to mend her broken heart and make her feel all that life has to offer. To protect her from the unwanted advances of a French diplomat, her cousin ensures her safety under the guise of a faux engagement with her brother's friend Edwin.
I enjoyed this novel mostly for Clarissa's interaction with Edwin however the plot line was a little lackluster for me. That is why I have to give this story a 3 out of 5 star rating. The Study of Seduction had all the elements of a good romance and I honestly fell in love with Edwin's blunt and protective nature. However I felt that after they married I started to lose interest in their romance but I'm still happy I finished the book because I wanted to see why the French diplomat was so intent on pursuing Clarissa.
I received this book as an eARC from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
